SEMI-REGULAR MUSINGS FROM THE SEMI-REGULAR MIND OF WRITER J.M. DeMATTEIS
Far out!wishing you nothing, but goodwill and hipness from here to the stars,Jack
"From here to the stars" takes on new meaning after watching that video, doesn't it, Jack?
Nah, that is pretty much what I always envisioned.Wishing you nothing, but goodwill and hipness from here to the stars,Jack
You're a cosmic guy!
Hey J.M, please tell which one would you choose to get:Brooklyn DreamsMercy Or The Last OneI´d buy more than one of course, but the shipping is too high!
If I had to pick one (and I guess I do!) I'd say BROOKLYN DREAMS...especially in the new IDW hardcover, which is bigger than the old DC/Vertigo edition and so gives the art a lot more room to breathe. Enjoy (I hope)!
Thanks man! I found Mercy here, already bought it. Will buy Brooklyn dreams from Amazon. Did you ever get a chance to see the Ray Bradbury article published in our Brazilian web zine ?
Hey Just bought the hardcover version!
Thanks so much! Hope you enjoy it. BD is very near and dear to my heart.
You sort of touch a bit of that on Moonshadow, didn't you ?Believe or not, It was cheaper to buy directly from Amazon and it takes 1 week. I am looking after Blood too. I said I did not like it, but maybe I was too young!
Amazon usually has great deals on graphic novels. Re: BLOOD. It's very possible you still might not like it. And that's fine with me. You can't like everything I write! : )
JMD,If you get a chance you should read VENOM 22. It's titled "Father's Day" and I think you'd appreciate what Remender does with Flash's history and how he deals with the cycle of violence. Especially since you were the one who gave us Flash's backstory!Best,David
Thanks, David. That story about Flash and his dad was one of my favorites from my second run on SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN.
Hey J.M guess what ? Mercy is astonishing, but it is hard to get into it at first, because of the abstract start and art, but once you get into the story flows like a poetry and at the end we are blown away. Still need to read again as any good poetry. Brooklyn Dreams has arrived, it one of the books you love before reading. I read page 1 and it already amazed me, the tone of it, is Moonshadow-ish, quite perhaps one of the best writings from our race! Dude, this issue is awesome when placed in my shelf. There is a new cover compared to the DC issue.
Yes, Daniel, it's a brand new cover that Glenn Barr did for the IDW edition. Hope the rest of the book meets your expectations!MERCY is one of my projects that flew under the radar when it came out, but I loved working on it with artist Paul Johnson and a wonderful editor, Art Young. It's a story that came from my heart; very glad that it touched yours.
